Improving the Quality of Life for Our Communities

Continuing a tradition of embracing, supporting + being a force for change

MOA® Community Foundation

We exist to change things for the better, improving the quality of life for our communities, investing in inclusive opportunities to make measurable impact in education, mental health, community wellness + financial stability.

Targeted Support for Broad Impact

We have identified four Foundation focus areas, however, our impact in each individual area is intended to have a cumulative ripple effect. When families feel economically stable, kids can learn. When a person’s mental health is prioritized, their physical health can improve as well. No one focus area is more important than any other; all four combine to uplift all in our community.

All Mall of America® Community Foundation support is directed to Minnesota based causes.

First Year Focus: Education for All

Every journey begins with a single step. For our inaugural year, Mall of America Community Foundation has made the thoughtful decision to focus on the pillar, Education for All. We firmly believe that growth and strength come through, from + by education. Our goal in this first year is to have a measurable impact in this area—laying the groundwork for a successful future.
